Ok, so I need help with an especific situation: basically, I was lazy in picking a victory condition, eventually going for conquest/domination. I have four vassals, there are two free civs left but one of them is almost finishing the spaceship. I obvioulsy went for them, but the big problem is: a) his capital is not coastal. b) at first, I attacked their coastal cities, easily razing four of them and keeping one with the intention of spearheading to their capital (3 tiles away, inland). Problem is, next turn they nuke the hell out of this spearhead city, anihilating my SoD. What can I do to get this sorted out? I don't see anyways of getting that city in a single turn, so I fell like any SoD I land will be eaten by nukes. Also, he has an SDI, which I lack (but I can problably get one before he wins, if that's the case). One extra question: one turn after I declared, the guy bribed the second free civ in war against me. I though the AI would not take bribes to attack nuclear powered civs?
